Policing

Policing, a vital service

Policing is an important field. Every society requiring people to act within its laws must have a police force to ensure this happens. Society thus must highly train and properly equip its police force. This police force can then perform its duty efficiently and effectively within the law..

This police force must also employ qualified and impartial selectors. It must, additionally, use an effective selection process for screening applicants.

The police force should also select only the most suitable applicants available. They should recruit only applicants with the best possible character. Such applicants, trained by the ideal basic and continuing training programmes, will become good policemen.

Where the force practises illegal and habitual physical violence against citizens, authorities should launch an independent and impartial enquiry. Such an enquiry should also exist where the force shows signs of corruption.

The law courts should prosecute members of the force who are guilty of illegal physical acts against citizens. The courts should also prosecute those members who perform acts of corruption.

Evidence of habitual physical abuse, or habitual corruption should also prompt a review of several areas of the force. This review should look at, among other areas and people, selection and recruitment processes, and recruiters. It should also look at training and appraisal, and their methods and content.

Abuse

Abuse, the end must start somewhere

Abuse against women should never happen; but many abused women think they deserve this treatment and make no effort to escape it.

Such women need to change their self view; and start the process of practically untangling themselves from this life of destruction.

Sources that can help abused women improve their self view include the Holy Bible. These women can also use literature from the Living Church of God to help them; and the church also offers counseling to them.

With an improved self view they can change their attitude; and they can develop self confidence and walk away from the relationship.
